Since its first edition Linha de Fuga has launched this challenge to artists: How to document and archive the ephemeral? It is from this idea that they present their proposals.
Assuming that documenting and archiving the ephemeral is a complex task, it is automatically assumed that this process is not partial, but subjective, an artistic creation. In this way, the selected artists are free to think and build their own perspective on this idea.
In the year 2020 there is a very strong imponderable, the impossibility of the artists being present in Coimbra, due to the restrictions on international travel raised by the pandemic. The Mundus Collective, which had also proposed to produce a documentation based on the idea of Democracy, is invited to be the avatar of these artists in Coimbra. Throughout the Laboratory, they work together, from a distance, and the documenters challenge them, ask for feedback and many other actions.
The year following the Festival and Laboratory is the time when all the material produced is organized, thinking about the best way to express everything that has been experienced.
